What would you do??


Recommended Posts

Trying to get the engine in the 1256 wheatland put back together, but I’m on my 3rd set of main bearings that the thrust bearing is formed to big (lose in the block and cap)  So I found the bearings that we put in it before the overhaul, and they fit tight! Those bearings were never ran, just rolled over putting things together until we found major issues and had to pull it down for overhaul.  The new/used bearings had some dirt and debris on them from staying in the block while it waited for the machine shop trip, and moved around the shop.  After spraying them with brake cleaner, I can’t feel anything on them with very light rubbing.  So my question is, would you use them so you can get an engine back together, or keep buying bearings until you find a set that fits correctly? This is my first overhaul in years, and already stuck with 3 rounds of bad bearings, I don’t know how you guys that overhaul many engines in a year keep your sanity?! 85783DE2-FDC6-43FC-A932-4ECF05476E3D.thumb.jpeg.a26becdec37a24876b6d9e28ffca9976.jpeg
